uh, nevermind x2.


uh, nevermind.


Nylander with Matthews and Marleau.


Leafs don't have another back-to-back until Dec. 22/23 (when Detroit will be the 2nd game of the B2B) so this seems like good timing for a Sparks appearance.

Realistically, his teammate Bouwmeester would be a massive upgrade on Hainsey.

Not so sure that's true actually with the season Bouwmeester is having right now.

Why did the "Big 3" thread get stopped, still 2 left?

90% of the thread was probably about Nylander since he was the most pressing concern at the time.

Also it can be hard to keep track of new news/comments with jumbo threads like that, so at some point they just need to be closed and a new one started fresh.


If you need a reminder of just how dominant Nylander can be, especially in the neutral zone, I suggest reading that article.

12-12-4, 28 points | 20-8-0, 40 points

Game Notes

•Howard (9-6-4, 2.77 GAA, .920 Sv%) will likely start for the Wings
•Detroit is doing slightly better than expected this season, as they're only 3 points behind Montreal for the final wild card spot in the East. Lots of competition for that spot though and I wouldn't be putting my money on them
•Tyler Bertuzzi is serving a 2-game suspension for sucker-punching a player while he was still on the Wings bench. Runs in the extended family, I guess
•Every teams star is having a career year it seems this season and Dylan Larkin is no different. He isn't quite in PPG land but he still leads the team with 24 points in 28 games

•Andersen (16-7-0, 2.32 GAA, .931 Sv%) will likely start for the Nylanders
•Our glorious son William Nylander will be making his season debut tonight
•The team didn't practice yesterday, so no word on who Willy will be playing with. I'm guessing he goes right back to the Matthews line. It's possible he starts with Kadri so the top-6 isn't disrupted, or maybe Kapanen takes Marleau's spot on the Matthews line


•Trevor Daley - Lower Body - Questionable Thursday
•Danny DeKeyser - Hand - Injured Reserve
•Darren Helm - Shoulder - Injured Reserve
•Anthony Mantha - Hand - Injured Reserve

More offence ?

Good idea, we should get Panarin as a rental too.

Laine and Ovechkin are both on pace for 60+ goals right now. And there's like half a dozen other guys on pace for 50+. We'll probably see some slow down there but gotta think that at least one player hits the 50 goal mark this season. Matthews would need to score 35 goals in 54 games to hit that, which is 0.65 goals per game. His career rate, including this season, is 0.56 goals per game. So hitting 50 goals would be pretty tough but I guess not impossible especially if this whole goal-a-game thing continues for awhile longer.

But if Laine or Ovi hit 60 then Matthews would need 45 goals in 54 games to match that. And yeah, I think we might be reaching a bit there.

I like him when he gives insights/details from back when he was a GM/President, but yeah when he's discussing current events it's pretty clear he's a little behind.

They lost Leipsic to LA on waivers earlier this week.

I'm guessing they're serious about uniting the Hughes brothers.

True story I just went on their capfriendly page and literally laughed out loud when I reminded myself what Gudbranson's contract was.

Yeah I mean I think I like Sandin just about as much as the next person but he's played 12 AHL games and Liljegren is getting the tougher minutes at the moment.

Hey, Gagner's back:

Here's the thing though. In 7 games with the Canucks he had 3 points in 7 games while averaging 18 minutes a night. That seems pretty respectable, especially considering Vancouver, you know, sucks. He also recorded a 58.21% CF in those games, which is fantastic. Vancouver is the 7th worst possession team in the league right now.

But who cares, their loss is the Marlies' gain. And with him, Klimchuk, and Carcone in the fold now their forwards are better/deeper than any other point this season. Probably planning on winning every game 7-5.
